2009 MCAA Midyear Meeting


Jeff BuczkiewiczMCAA Midyear Report

The 2009 MCAA Midyear Meeting was held in September in San Diego at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. The meeting was a great success as the program presented excellent educational programs. In addition to the excellent educational programs, attendees had a great time with numerous networking functions and participated in an MCAA Board Meeting and three committee meetings. The event was capped off with a wonderful evening of baseball at PETCO Park as the San Diego Padres took on the Arizona Diamondbacks in the historical Western Metal Building. That evening began with an excellent show of the Navy Seals skydiving team (see photos) and saw the Padres losing the game 3-1 in the ninth inning.

Members of the MCAA can go to the MCAA Web site ( to view, free of charge, two of the four educational sessions presented in San Diego. The two programs are Family Succession Planning, and Immigration and E-Verify. The MCAA would like to send a very large thank you to the sponsors of our event who helped make the event a huge success:

MK Diamond Mortar Net
Non-Stop Scaffolding MCASD
